Help!! Quick!!

Okay, so I actually have a couple of days yet but I do need some help quick with this one.

My son is a Tiger Scout and I haven't yet put the patches on his uniform that we were given (his pack #, insignia, and Niagara Frontier one). My aim is to have this done before the Blue and Gold dinner on Sunday. My problem is, from the website that I found, that has tons and tons of useful scouting info, it's only got a black and white diagram of the uniform and only says this patch goes here, this one goes there but doesn't say if they are supposed to be in specific areas (for instance, how far down from the shoulder is the NF patch supposed to be? Does it matter?). Also, the shirt we got was from someone else and though we removed most of their patches we kept on the US Flag that is over the left breast pocket... can it stay there, or do I HAVE to remove it and put it on the shoulder? If it has to go,then it goes but I don't want to create work for myself if it's acceptable where it is.

I know, I know, I'm a slacker mom... but if there is anyone out there who can help I'd really appreciate it.

If you can find the insigna guide they use for inspection, the sample sleeve has insigna shown where it should be sewn.

As you can see in the uniform inspection form, it does give you a bit of an idea where to put things and how much space they should take up.
